The Municipal Art Society of New York Reviews


"The MAS's expertise in conducting tours is highly evident; the book provides extraordinarily precise directions on where to walk, where to look up and when to turn around. The text, by architectural tour guide Francis Morrone and architectural historian Matthew A. Postal, is rich without being overly dense, and striking high-resolution photography by Edward A. Toran makes the volume useful to armchair travelers as well." -- Modernism
"References to other buildings are thoughtfully keyed, aware of the manner in which a book allows for the walking tour to devolve into something more personal, less scripted....It furthers [the MAS] mission of celebrating the city's many layers and appreciating them firsthand." -- John Hill - Archidose.org
"The book is a suitable gift for out-of-town visitors or city residents, and it could serve as the basis for a group excursion, if you're looking for a cheaper, D.I.Y. approach to teambuilding." -- BizBash
